Adderall and Parkinson's disease - a phase IV clinical study of FDA data
We study 47,350 people who have side effects when taking Adderall. Parkinson's disease is found, especially among people who are female, 60+ old, have been taking the drug for 1 - 2 years, also take Xyrem and have Cataplexy.
The phase IV clinical study analyzes which people take Adderall and have Parkinson's disease. It is created by eHealthMe based on reports from the FDA, and is updated regularly. You may use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.
Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world. With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV trials and makes the results available to the public. Our original studies have been referenced on 700+ medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature.
47,350 people reported to have side effects when taking Adderall.
Among them, 41 people (0.09%) have Parkinson's disease.
